Police Solve 1986 Brisbane Murder Of Sharron Phillips

A taxi driver who died 15 years ago is believed to have murdered young Queensland woman Sharron Phillips in 1986.

Police who reopened the investigation into the 20-year-old's disapperance in May 1986 say that if Raymond Peter Mulvihill was alive today, he'd be charged with the 20-year-old's murder.

Mulvihill died in 2002. He drove a cab that was based at the back of a Wacol convenience store where Ms Phillips made a phone call after her car ran out of petrol on the night of May 9, 1986.

Detectives formed the view he was the killer after receiving a tip off.

Detective Inspector Damien Hanson says police are keeping an open mind, and will consider whether he may have had an accomplice.

But he said there was no evidence to support that at this stage.
